[5.0] "FEEL THE POWER OF THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR! The Ultimate Warrior isn't a very good wrestler. He brings a lot of energy to the arena when he enters but when the match starts not much happens."

[10.0] "Ultimate Warrior was just awesome. He was charismatic, colorful and entertaining. He dominated in WWE, became intercontinental champion 2 times and even better became WWE champion by defeating Hulk Hogan. I have been a wrestling fan all my life and in my opinion Ultimate Warrior is one of the greatest of all time."
GuruCrack wrote on 06.04.2015:
[2.0] "Utter garbage, terrible mic skills, could barely understand what he was saying, yes he was strong but he didn't have a moveset. I mean he was as good in the ring as I would be. it was a disgrace how he was every a champion and he was a disgrace for how he treated the company he worked for."
Dnayew wrote on 03.04.2015:
[0.0] "I can't give him a rating low enough. The Warrior (who legally changed his name to that, because he was a complete nutjob), is truly epic in how bad he actually sucked at wrestling. He was terrible on the mic, and was an absolute abomination in the ring. If he was terrible in the ring and on the mic, what was he actually good at? The answer is: Nothing. He was ripped, wore face paint, and ran around like an idiot. And in Vince's world that equals a "true superstar". While he may have been a "superstar", the Warrior was NOT a professional wrestler."
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 24.03.2015:
[7.0] "Like a living action figure, the Ultimate Warrior was certainly one of wrestling's most memorable figures from my childhood. His high-energy entrances and incoherent promos made him a unique character. Yes, he was limited as far as ring skill goes, but the right opponent - such as Randy Savage or Rick Rude - could get good matches out of him (I still maintain the career match vs. Savage at WrestleMania VII as a classic). We'll certainly never forget the power of the Warrior."

[10.0] "Giving this man a 4. 74 rating is ridiculous. I feel that Warrior's haters are even crazier than he was! Great charisma, crowd control, look and energy and had a very entertaining and original gimmick. Unforgettable, if sometimes baffling promos and memorable, high energy entrances. One of the best physiques of all time. Face paint and attire was iconic. Not a great worker and usually worked short matches but had great in ring chemistry with the likes of Randy Savage, Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect and Ted Dibiase. People say that he was carried by those guys but the truth is that he elevated those matches with his showmanship and intensity. Has several legitimate 4 star matches under his belt. Underrated as a worker and despite reputation for being a loner and difficult backstage, was generally well liked in the locker room and never became a slave to the business or a suck up to Vince McMahon. Huge draw in the late 80s and early 90s, who's popularity and merchandise sales rivaled that of Hulk Hogan. Hugely influential, 90% of the current WWE locker room were fans of his growing up. Even pure workers like Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and Hiroshi Tanahashi (! ) have cited him as influences. Worked hard to get the Undertaker over when the Undertaker was just a rookie."

[8.0] "Not great in ring but so much charisma it really didnt matter. Beloved by fans and comparable to a shooting star. As memorable a promo as anyone ever, and when the music hit the crowd erupted."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 01.12.2014:
[8.0] "As far as mid-card champions are concerned, Warrior was elite in that regards. Yet when he got passed the torch to transition to main event status, things didn't pan out for whichever reason (maybe it was money issues, Warrior's perceived talent or lack thereof, burn out, or some combination of the above. ) Nevertheless, his face-paint and theme music are iconic; he definitely left his mark on professional wrestling."
Piegas wrote on 01.10.2014:
[2.0] "Has anyone ever watched a wrestling match featuring The Ultimate Warrior and thought "Wow, that was a great match! "? I doubt it. 2 points for involuntary humour and entertainment purposes only."
